The South Norfolk Neighborhood Watch Group Inc. formed a committee in March of 2012 to discuss the possibility of a community garden in South Norfolk. The committee established its goals, a property was located and planning began. The new property was cleared in June.

By Thanksgiving of 2012, members were donating greens to community dinners and a local soup kitchen. The little garden continued to grow and in the summer of 2013, gardeners donated an average of 55 pounds of surplus food to neighborhood soup kitchens, food banks, shelters, and families each week.

Every year, volunteer gardeners work to cultivate greater volumes of produce to consume, to share and to donate. Please come to a meeting or a work day. We need you.
